OAKLAND, Calif., Oct. 9 (UPI) -- A California grandfather who found a note left on a 12,000-foot peak by a boy in 1972 discovered the teenager grew up to be a Superior Court judge.

Larry Wright, 69, of Oakland, found the note in a film canister on an unnamed peak while hiking with his 14-year-old grandson and others in Sequoia National Park and he soon discovered the the note from August 1972 was written by a 13-year-old who grew up to become San Diego Superior Court Judge Timothy Taylor, U-T San Diego reported Tuesday.

"Tim Taylor climbed to this peak, Thursday, August 17, 1972. Age 13 yrs. Anyone finding this please write," the note reads.

Taylor said he remembers leaving the note during a backpacking trip with the Boy Scouts.

"It was a wonderful day. I remember it so clearly," he said.
